Nice ferry ride, however DO NOT buy the golf carts from the vendors on board!!! They lied about the cost of a taxi. We are well travelled and believed the guys from Ultramar selling the 40 dollar golf cart rental. It will save you money to pay for a cab instead. Only 12 bucks from terminal to Palace resort for...

Great way to get to Isla Mujares have been lots off times, very cheap. Make sure you get on the correct ferry to return to Cancun. We ended up in I think Porto Jarez and had to get a taxi to our hotel but it was funny seeing our hotel getting smaller and smaller.

This ferry is clean and we'll maintained. A fast method to get to Isla Mujeres. $19.00 roundtrip, or $10.00 one way.

We took the ferry to Isla Mujeres and back to Cancun 8 days later. It was nice way to go. Inside seating more comfortable but was nice sitting on top on the first ride. They had a musician playing guitar. Sun was out and made for a beautiful ride.

My husband and I were on the top of the boat for both trips to and from the island. They had entertainment too! One the way to the island there was a traditional mexican singer/dancer (I was a little too close to the speaker for that one!). On the way back there was a saxophone player playing many different types... More

Took their ferry from Cancun to Isla Majeures while visiting the region on vacation. The boat was very clean and the transit both ways was fast and comfortable. The boat's masthead light was loose and needed attention.

Very easy and convenient way to get to Isla Mujeres. Fun live entertainment for the short ride. Make sure to bring a few bucks to tip the live perfumers- they make the full experience!

The ferry is cheap, runs often, and the view from the top deck of the water helps purge the stress of flying...pivoting to the slower pace of Isla Mujeres. Definitely sit on top to hear the musicians playing.

There isn't too much to say except that the Ultramar ferries are right up there with the best at a fraction of the price you pay elsewhere. Usually the cheapest return ticket to Isla Mujeres with any other provider is at least US$65 and on their very limited timetables. Ultramar allows you to pay MX$350 which is roughly US$19 for...
